In The Loop is a foul-mouthed comedy that draws on non-specific events to create a world that is terrifyingly familiar: The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war, but not everyone agrees that war is a 'good thing'. US General Miller (James Gandolfini - The Sopranos, The Taking Of Pelham 123) certainly doesn't think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster (Tom Hollander - Pirates of the Caribbean, Pride and Prejudice). But when the mild-mannered minister inadvertently appears to back the war on prime-time television, he immediately attracts the attention of the PM's venomously aggressive communications chief Malcolm Tucker (reprised from The Thick of It by Peter Capaldi), who latches onto him like a hawk. Soon, the Brits are in Washington, where diplomatic relations collide with trans-Atlantic spin doctors and Foster's off-hand remark quickly spirals into an insurmountable 'mountain of conflict'.

 No, it's going to be difficult-difficult-lemon-difficult.

Being a ex Civil Servant for a Central UK Government department, I can honestly say that In The Loop is an accurate representation of the world of Politics. OK, the Director of Communications is not as foul mouthed as Malcolm Tucker, but all the scheming and double backing stabbing, 'off the record chit-chatting' are . The golden rule in Government is this: It's not what you know, it's who you know.

But I digress. In The Loop is a superbly written satirical look at the world of politics. The plot is extremely clever and at times it seems a little bit too real that it could be based on real life events. All the actors and actresses are superb. This movie is not for the faint of hearts though. There is a lot of strong swearing, lots of use of the f-word and c-word that I lost count.

In The Loop is a spin-off of the award winning TV series 'The Thick of It' and if you liked that and the Yes Minister series, you will love this movie.

The DVD contains the usual extras: Director and cast commentary/interviews, deleted scenes etc. It's only in English with English Description.

 The wave of 5 stars is justified.

What a film. This political satire filmed almost like a 'fly on the wall' documentary gave me laughter, cringeworthy feelings and gripped by its perfect pace.

Watch as the central abuse dummy, Simon Foster is bombard from the swear word cannon that blows off at every opportunity, Malcolm Tucker looms over his every awkward slip up, from the press to inside the White House.

A guaranteed intelligent laugh that should be watched by anyone interested in films that are well directed, scripted and casted making 'In The Loop' a comedy masterpiece.

 Quite simply hilarious!

Possibly the most I have ever laughed when in the cinema! Peter Capaldi's character is sharp as a tack with some of the best one liners you are likely to hear! A must see!

 Highly Enjoyable Witty Satire

Really enjoyed the Sharp banter and even Cruder Insults.
The Acting was Flawless. The Script was the True Star.
This will not be to everyones taste.
